Fate Black Gen 2

You don’t think $100 can get you a good fishing rod anymore? Try the Fate Black Gen 2 series. These rods are light and sensitive, with tangle-free guides and cool-looking Evolve seamless reel seats built around premium Portuguese cork. The series includes nine baitcasting and five spinning rods, all with fast-action tips. Despite the name, the rods are actually bright green to differentiate them from a previous Fate Black line.
